As ideal for browsing as it is useful for quick reference, this dictionary remains an essential guide for students and teachers of economics, business, and finance, as well as for professional economists and anyone who has to deal with economic data.
`Review from previous edition John Black's dictionary provides clear and concise explanations...An excellent system of cross-referencing the various entries is a valuable aspect...this book is strongly recommended as a handy work of reference for any non-economist who wants to have a better idea about what is going on in economic debates...this book deserves to sell well to a wide audience...it illuminates in a concise and accessible way nnny of the words and ideas used both in economics itself and in practical political debates on the subject.'
